January transfer window


Recommended Posts

Am I missing something???
Don’t we need to get a player or some players out before someone can come in ?

Maybe when mckirdy or another leaves this is when Taylor will come in

As long as they’re out by the end of the window it’s ok. Worse case scenario they can be “de-selected” from the squad

Rumours picking up that Taylor will sign tomorrow

I did say a week or so ago that i expected Taylor to sign for us this window even when he was at Scunthorpe and i dont think any different now

Interesting if true.

I can see how we would have fitted into our second half formation yesterday but if we decide to play 4-4-2 again, who would you drop to accomodate him?

I would like us to sign Aden Flint as centre half on loan from Cardiff if there was any way possible. He has had an injury similar to Gibbo whilst on loan at Sheffield Wednesday They have sent him back and he seems to be surplus to requirements at Cardiff. The fact that he may not be fit enough to play until mid Feb so  I don't think there would be many takers for him. If Cardiff would pay his wages it would be better for them if he had regular games in the football league rather than reserve team games. It would hopefully put us an a good position to sign him when his contract expires in 18 months if we have managed to get promotion to the first division. I would hope he could a job for us like Legge has done while he has been with us, and is quicker can bring the ball out and actually pass to a colleague and can also score goals.

Am I being too unrealistic?

Did we ever see Taylor in a midfield two? Hope he could adapt, as I’m not sure Burgess and Whitehead are capable of playing in a two, which means we are short of options if we are looking to play 4-4-2 more regularly.

Macc away I think. Although Askey very rarely played that formation in his time as manager.

Completely unrealistic, Flint is a quality championship player and no way he would go down to league 1 never mind a mid table - lower half league 2 club.

Either way Santa,certainly an upgrade on Whitehead from what we have seen so far,maybe Taylor is earmarked to play in a number 10 kind of role when needed and if pugh becomes manager he has shown in one game that he is prepared to change formations,so imo Taylor will be a great addition and he is a midfielder we know can score goals

Not sure about a 3yr deal but if he can sign now(depending on rules of the grant money) then i feel it would be 2.5yr deal,if not then it would be a loan until end of season(but we will be paying a little for him) then he will get the 2 or 3yr

I thought someone had to go before we can sign anybody.

Didn’t Micky Adams nearly sign him the season we went up? Instead he went to Swindon and has carved out a decent career in the Championship.
